Medium Wave Radio

I was just wondering if anyone can explain this to me...

Back in the States I was able to listen to a huge variety of Medium Wave (what's commonly called AM radio in the U.S.) radio 24/7. Here in Poland (in the days before the Internet), however, I quickly realized that I was unable to receive any MW/AM signals until well into the evening at which point I could receive broadcasts from all over Europe. Before coming back to Poland, I bought a small short wave receiver and have experienced the same problem. Nothing during the day, more than I can shake a stick at in the evening. I know it probably has something to do with the ionsphere and the curvature of the Earth, but why is there dead air during the day? Signals aren't going out at all? Anywhere in Europe? Or am I just looking in the wrong place.

Any insight would be welcomed. I enjoy trying to decipher meaning and to find enterianment from foreign radio, and when using the Internet, one has to know where to go directly. Part of the fun for me is going up and down the dial and discovering something new.

I can't help with your question, but I agree with your comment "Part of the fun for me is going up and down the dial and discovering something new. ". I thought I was the only one who enjoyed doing this
